  1. You are not the only one with the companionship/friendship issue. Loneliness and depression affect alot of us. Keep reaching for that gold ring. College might be a good idea, there alot of people our age taking classes. I was surprised when I went back. Have a good weekend.

  2. You know, Life has many stopping, starting, pausing, reflecting, and restarting points. Sometimes we get to the point where we have to toss out things and unfortunately walk away from relationships and friendships that no longer serve us for where we are going or growing. It’s hard. It’s hard for everyone, no one is immune. I am in the same boat, my friend, rebuilding my life after another set of major life changes and wondering where my close friends and the people I care about are. It’s not that there are people that care close, there are, it’s just a short pause where we feel a bit hollow because we’re still adjusting to the changes. Hope this helps a little. You are doing a wonder job and seem like an amazing person.

    • Thank you Cherry I am confused a lot still..lol but these changes I’m feeling are starting to point to a direction, I’m learning so much presently I have taken a break from reading certain things for a while…I do thank you for the comments….

  3. One of the hardest things about recovery might be having to give things time. The changes are so dramatic sometimes that it becomes a little overwhelming and we want certain things back to normal as quickly as possible. It’s hard to walk away from those we knew as friends, but that’s what has to be done if the camaraderie was centered around drug use. Just as people were placed in your path in the past, more will be placed there in the future. You’re venturing into new areas and in new directions, and you’ll meet a lot of new people that you have common interests with. Remember you’re just taking time for you right now, sticking with your program and doing a fantastic job. This rut you’re feeling is very temporary, and with your personality and friendly disposition, you’ll have no problem making new friends. Although it’s not easy at first, try not to be afraid of developing new friendships, you’ll find you’ll be drawn to new people for different reasons, common interests and goals, and nothing having to do with drug use. I’m more than confident you can get through this difficult time, just remember it’s temporary. Keep going Tim 🙂
